important and necessary that this website is the “single source of truth” as
this is how we will continue to manage document and version control. If you
have been working off previous draft versions of information overviews/PPA
forms, please make these obsolete and delete any previous draft copies you
may have been using.It is important the information on the website is
viewed as the current and final documents.
As part of our CQI
process, we expect there will be minor changes to the website/information as
the programme is embedded, and will welcome feedback so we can make adjustments
on a monthly basis.
thanks to all who have helped to get us to this point and for your valuable
feedback to date.
really look forward to working with you on this exciting new collaborative and
making a positive difference in the lives of patients and their families
Kind regards, Deirdre, Programme Manager – Palliative Outcomes
